Pelotonia, a grassroots ride to raise cancer research money, takes place this weekend. Should be an awesome event for many years to come. [Full story] [Ride site] Plenty of local bike news at Yay Bikes!, which lately has been stepping up its community efforts. Here's a great idea: a festival dedicated to honey. Props to Lithopolis for making this a reality. Enjoy bee beards, honeycombs and other sweet stuff Saturday, Sept. 12. Also, don't forget about the opening of the Grange Insurance Audubon Center on Friday. The new urban nature center will be the centerpiece of the Whittier Peninsula, which has undergone many upgrades en route to becoming a bona fide Metro Park. I'll have the full story tomorrow in the Venture column.
